The Crafty Traveller: No-frills hotels - budget brilliance or more than you bargained for?
Heard about the hotel that charges extra if you want your room cleaned? It sounds like a (bad) joke, doesn't it? But such a hotel actually exists, and it's in London.

The company has plans to open 15 more hotels in the capital over the next seven years.
